This is reserved for Otakami.

If it is to be used in a scanlation, credit the translator as Transfade. Bubbles that have no need to be translated are not included. Bubble sequence is in order from rightmost to leftmost in most cases otherwise just figure out the flow of the speech bubbles. Generally I may interchange SFX sounds with their onomatopoeia to go with the flow. I may also leave certain phrases in Japanese because I can稚 think of a suitable English equivalent. This translation has yet to be proofread.

Name Mutter: - Means a person says something outside a bubble
SFX: - Sound Effect
Name: Apple Banana(STYLE) Cucumber ・Means a particular word has to be done in a specific style
Name(STYLE): - Means the entire sentence is done in the mentioned style.
(Random) ・Means a comment only meant for working purposes.
(TN:) ・Means this comment is meant to be included in the typesetted version.

Guy: ...what was up with that?
Guy: To get pulled into that book like that...
Guy: Come to think of it, the book cover was one of ours.
Guy: Oh well. She'll be reading right next to me tomorrow too...
Small text: The same as every day

Page 98
Box(CHINESE LOOKING FONT): For every demon he slew he brought himself the resentment that came with them. The time for rest and anything of that sort would no longer come.
Box(CHINESE LOOKING FONT): Thinking that, his frame of mind became one without hope. That together with the fatigue from his long journey, Cayes fell to the ground.
Old man: Hoho. So you are the much talked about hero.
Old man: We ended up saving a great man then.

Page 99
Box(CHINESE LOOKING FONT): The elderly man was bringing the girl to the "Temple". They were on their way to perform their village's salvation ritual.
Box(CHINESE LOOKING FONT): However, it would be difficult for them to walk any further because of the elderly man's physical strength. They asked Cayes to guard the girl.
Box(CHINESE LOOKING FONT): They had also helped saved him from dying after he collapsed.
Box(CHINESE LOOKING FONT): Cayes could not refuse.

Cayes: Haa
Cayes: Haa
Cayes: Haa
Box(CHINESE LOOKING FONT): Cayes feared that more demons would now come after him than before. He had the handicap of having someone to protect. Just for how much farther would they be safe? He hated painful things. He did not want to get hurt. He did not want to die.
Box(CHINESE LOOKING FONT): Cayes was not "One with courage" or anything of that sort. He began fighting to avenge his parents. His name came to be known among demons and he continued to fight because of it. Even after avenging them, he continued to fight.
Box(CHINESE LOOKING FONT): To protect his own body, he had slain far, far too many demons. The people called him a "hero" for it.
Box(CHINESE LOOKING FONT): In reality, Cayes was one who feared injury and death to an excessive degree. There was no such thing in this wasteland.

Page 102
Box(CHINESE LOOKING FONT): Cayes thought to himself
Box(CHINESE LOOKING FONT): "I can't stand it anymore" Constantly
Tv: And the motive of the arrested youths was this
Tv: "We were bored". That's what they said but...
Guy: So boredom's a crime...

Page 103
Guy: No dreams. No money.
Guy: I don't have a girlfriend. No hobbies either.
Guy: And my job at the bookstore is one where I can take off to have a smoke.
Guy: An everyday where today was the same as yesterday and tomorrow will be the same as today... Looks like I'm a poet too.
Small text: Haha
Guy: All I have is
Guy: time

Guy: ...That book...

Girl: Thank you for coming this far
Girl: I had fun on our adventure.
Girl: I don't know the particulars of the ritual so I don't how long it will take.
Girl: Wait here okay.
Girl: There's the trip back too after all.
Box: Fun?
Box: Fun you say?
Box: Just what part of being so close to death was fun...
Girl: Kyaaaa!!

Page 106
Monster: I extend my welcome to the sacrifice of the ritual.
Girl: Wha
Monster: The ritual is pretty straightforward. I eat you and I swear an oath not to attack your village for another three years. Simple give and take, that's all.
Girl: Eh
Girl: Wait...
Monster: Now then, time to eat...
Monster: Hmph. Relax kiddo.
Monster: I'm not going to be eating you.
Monster: Just don't get in my way and I'll leave you alone.

Page 107
Monster: I'll even tell the other demons "You shall not be harmed".
Monster: All you have to do is go away, just like that.
Monster: That's not such a bad deal right?
Box: I won't get attacked? I won't have to fight?
Box: I won't get hurt
Box: I Won't die
Girl: Cay
Girl: Cayes
Cayes: Ah
Cayes: I

Cayes: The place I've always been searching for. Are you coming too?

Page 114
Cayes: Where today was the same as yesterday and tomorrow will be the same as today.
Cayes: To a land where time passes by quietly and peacefully.

Text(BOLD): Part 4 [The Exorcist]
*This bespectacled dark-haired exorcist oneesan wearing a T-shirt, jeans and a cap was character I came up with before my debut. A strong masculine spirit, cooking seasoned with weak alcohol and dislikes smoking, has a hobby of mountain climbing, After failing to find a job she met a hermit in the mountains and became his disciple, that's how she got started. Though the main story's actually about the hitman and the child spirit, the exorcist played a support-like role. Starting up with her was impossible so I just drew her butting in. She's a good character and easy to use so I'd like to draw her again if I come up with something...
...at any rate the legacy behind the "pre-debut" is rich and abundant.
Woman: An Exorcist

Text(BOLD): Part 5 [Reading Time]
*The main character of a work within a work, Cayes and his magic hammer which happens to be origin of the Fukuryusho weapon from my "Sanjin Sadou" series. Those moments of impact with bludgeoning weapons are pretty cool but that form of lugging it around seemed a little tense doesn't it. And so I came up with a "without a before" hammer. Thought it'd be cool if it looked like a cane normally... That's what I think but what did you make of it?
Cayes: Haa
Cayes: Haa
Cayes: Haa

TN: Sorry about the delay but the narrative in this chapter was tricky. Also, I got sidetracked playing Kud Wafter. Great BGM track that one has.
